For those that don't know, there's a powerful photo editor inside G+ on Chrome - and today it got even better! Check out the Zoom and single-shot HDR features today!
 
Adding HDR Scape and Zoom to the Google+ photo editor

The Google+ photo editor brings the power of Snapseed to the Chrome browser, and today we’re adding two new features to the mix: HDR Scape and Zoom.

1. HDR Scape

With HDR Scape you can apply high dynamic range (HDR) effects to a single image, with a single click. HDR Scape is currently available in the Snapseed apps for Android and iOS, and today’s update brings the filter to Google+ on the web. You can see some examples here: https://plus.google.com/s/hdr%20scape.

2. Zoom

Seeing your images up close is an important part of the editing process — from checking the focus point, to seeing how the “Drama” filter has changed your pixels. With today’s update, you can now use the magnifying glass to zoom in or out.

To give either feature a try, simply open one of your photos in Google+ (using the Chrome browser), and click “Edit.” We’re rolling out these updates gradually, so check back soon if you don’t see them yet. #googleplusupdate

Check it out, googleverse! We've added some super slick editing powers into Google+. :D
 
Get creative with the new photo editing tools in Google+

Sometimes a photo needs a little extra touch to truly stand out. To help you customize your images, we’re launching new photo editing tools right within Google+. They’re all based on the power of Snapseed, and available in the Chrome browser (thanks to its Native Client technology). Here are a few of the fun things you can do:

* Auto Enhance already makes the photos you add to Google+ look great. Now you can customize and fine tune these adjustments if you have a different look in mind.
* Selective adjust lets you make edits to specific parts of your image, so you can make that summer sky look even more blue without affecting the beach in the foreground.
* Filters like Vintage, Drama, Retrolux or Black and White give your photos a new look. Add the finishing touch with a frame.

To give the new editing tools a try, open one of your own photos in Chrome and click on “Edit” in the lightbox. You can always undo any changes you make or revert to the original image.

If you're not using the Chrome browser, you can still crop and rotate your photos in Google+ -- in fact we're making these basic editing options easier to find up front, right next to the "Edit" button. And of course on mobile, Snapseed-inspired editing is available in both the Android and iOS Google+ apps.

p.s. We're rolling out these updates gradually, so check back soon if you don't see them yet. #googleplusupdate

Browse your photo highlights by date

To help you find your photos even faster, we’re adding a drop-down calendar to “Highlights” that lets you jump straight to the year and month you’re looking for. To give it a try, just visit plus.google.com/photos on the desktop, and hover over the date at the top right of the page.

Oh. And have a symbol (like Picasso's star) on every photo to identify highlights, for easy locating and toggling.... then I can just publish my highlights.... just like I did with Picasa....

New instant upload awesomeness! No you've got no excuse for not sharing those awesome photos you took of me at that thing we did together.
 
Making it easier to share your Instant Upload photos

Instant Upload adds photos and videos you take with your phone to a private album so you can share them later on Google+.  Today, I’m excited to announce some improvements that make it much easier to share those photos from your desktop.

To get started, just click on the camera icon to the left of your stream (see screenshots). From the new Instant Upload page, you can now:

Select, organize and share multiple photos: Just click on the checkmark below a photo to select it.  You can then rearrange selected photos into whatever order you want using the drop-down window. Once you’re happy with your selections just click “Share”!

Adding photos to an album: Once you’ve selected photos you can add them to a new or existing album by clicking “Add to album.”

Aaand, a few pro tips: To select lots of photos really quickly, you can click and drag the mouse around a group of photos, and/or click the checkmark next to a date.  You can also use your keyboard’s tab, enter and space keys to select and view photos.

Try it out and let us know your feedback!

Attention Google+: your photo album download and slideshow prayers have been answered! Nice job, +Andrew Lee and the rest of our awesome team.
 
#googleplusupdate #googlephotos

Hi, I’m Andrew Lee, a Software Engineer on the Google+ Photos team.

Two of the most common requests we get are the ability to view photos in a slideshow, and to download complete albums.

Well... you can now view album photos as a slideshow! Just open a photo in the lightbox, hit the slideshow button, and sit back and enjoy the photos full-screen (Example: http://goo.gl/5aNNA).

Today we’re also adding the ability to download complete albums. On an album page, click “More” and then “Download album” to get a .zip file containing the photos in the album (Example: http://goo.gl/EvfFH).

As always: if you want to turn off the ability for people to download your photos, simply go to Google+ Settings (https://plus.google.com/settings/plus) and uncheck “Allow viewers to download my photos.”

We hope you enjoy using these new Google+ features!  Keep the feedback coming!
